Bio Bits

Beach Bits:

 Kropp has partnered with three Olympians; Barbra Fontana, Holly McPeak and Nicole Branagh.
 
Kropp is one of just two players (with Kerri Walsh) to average at least 1.1 blocks per game in each of the two seasons 2007-08.
In just her second year full-time on the AVP Tour (2008), Kropp had just one tournament below ninth place.

2012: Kropp and Pavlik continued their success domestically, winning six events plus a NORCECA tournament. They placed third in the two AVP events, and then lost in the country quota in their only FIVB appearance. Kropp also played one additional FIVB tournament with Nicole Branagh, placing 17th in the Gstaad Grand Slam.
2011: Kropp continued playing with Pavlik, and in 15 tournaments across six tours, the duo won six times and finished second five times.
2010: In the season opener Kropp played with Nancy Reynolds, then formed a partnership with Whitney Pavlik, with a best of ninth three times in their five events.
2009: Kropp and Holly McPeak played together in the first three AVP events of the year, finishing ninth each time. Kropp then paired with Barbra Fontana for the remainder of the season, with a best of fifth. Kropp played her first international event to end the year, losing in the qualifier with Brittany Hochevar in an FIVB tournament.
2008: Kropp began playing with Nancy Mason, and they compiled nine finishes of seventh or better, including a third-place in Atlanta. The duo ended the season as the eighth-ranked team on the AVP Tour. Kropp was third in blocks per game (1.13) and fifth in kills per game (7.01).
2007: Prior to the season Kropp trained with Jenny Pavley and Heather Lowe. She began the season with a pair of tournaments with Julie Romias, and advanced to the main draw in both, finishing 17th and then 13th. She then changed partners to Pavley and placed 13th in six straight events before her breakout event in Chicago. Kropp and Pavley finished third after defeating four teams seeded in the top 10. In the four events following, they had a best of ninth, and Kropp earned the AVP Rookie of the Year award. Kropp ended the season third in blocks per game (1.15).
2006: Kropp played in two qualifiers in 2006, but did not advance to the main draw in either one.

College: Kropp was a middle blocker on Nebraska's undefeated team of 2000, with her coach labeling her the "heart of the team." She was a second-team All-American in 2001 as a senior, and twice was a first-team all-Region selection. She was fifth on the Nebraska career block charts, and stepped up her play in the postseason, with a 1.47 block per game average as well as a .340 hitting percentage in the NCAA Tournament. 

Personal: Following graduation from NU, she played professionally in Puerto Rico in 2002-03. She began playing volleyball when she was in seventh grade.
